Hi, I’m Hope and I am the voice of this little blog which is all about the unending journey that my husband Michael and I are on to continue leaning up our lives. If you are like us, you’ve got way too much going on and are trying to figure out how to lessen the number of plates you are spinning so that you can have time and energy to actually taste the good things on the plates you chose to keep.
We are your typical couple that started out our marriage with a ‘bring it on’ attitude. Nothing scares Michael and I am his biggest cheerleader, so we thought we could take on the world. Sound familiar? Add to that children, moves and lots of changes…It’s easy to get overloaded without realizing it when you want to do your best. Too often, we neglect ourselves and accept shortcuts or conveniences that end up consuming us. The choices we make on the daily affect everything from our walk with the Lord, to our relationships with each other and family, to our health and overall joy.
Our mission now is to lean up our lives by downsizing and simplifying the way we live by returning to the ways of generations before us; you know, those great grandparents who cooked from scratch, grew their own food, build things by hand and would laugh at us now for the things we have to google. It’s a journey and we want to enjoy and share it.
So, grab our favorite hot beverage, have a seat and let’s talk about all the things…
